Overview

Shauro Bagchi manages, negotiates, and closes national and cross-border mergers and acquisitions, technology and licensing transactions, and capital raising deals. He also provides day-to-day business counseling and related advisory services to his clients, including transaction structuring, technology licensing, and general commercial contract drafting.

Shauro is passionate and energetic; his mission is to help companies (both established and entrepreneurial) achieve their business and financial goals by providing practical, efficient, and business-minded legal advice. He has particular skill working with clients involved in advertising, software, manufacturing, and investment funds, which is enriched by prior experience working as part of an in-house corporate legal team for a Fortune 500 company in Minnesota.

Shauro has significant experience negotiating and drafting equity and asset-sale transaction documents, merger agreements, securities offering memoranda, and various commercial agreements. He regularly reviews, negotiates, and prepares agreements at the myriad intersections of business and advertising—including services agreements on behalf of agencies and SaaS/PaaS providers with complex, cutting-edge offerings as well as purchasers of such services and offerings.

Before moving to the U.S. at age nine, Shauro lived internationally in Asia, Africa, and Central America and brings his unique, diverse, and international perspectives to bear on solving real-world problems for his clients. As a result of his time abroad, he is proficient in Spanish and Bengali. Shauro is a leader in promoting diversity and inclusion at the Firm, and he serves as the Chair of Maslon's Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) Committee. This Committee is zealously focused on recruiting and retaining diverse lawyers and staff, and perennially executes training and enrichment programs (featuring in-house counsel, judges, and D&I champions), recruitment and retention-focused events, and client and affinity bar initiatives with the goal of promoting and achieving substantive diversity and inclusion. Shauro, and Maslon, take D&I seriously—certain core D&I training programs are required by the Firm's management and attorney attendance is mandatory. The Committee also includes a Diverse Attorney Resource Group and a subcommittee of D&I "allies" to foster and promote camaraderie among diversity-focused attorneys and their like-minded peers.

Selected to be a Maslon representative, Shauro participated in Leadership Twin Cities, a professional development program sponsored by the Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce. He is also active in the Minnesota Asian-Pacific American Bar Association and Twin Cities Diversity in Practice.
